KAZAN, June 20 (Itar-Tass) -The Supreme Court of Tatarstan on Thursday, June 20 will review the criminal case over the murder of an eight-year-old schoolgirl.
"The case will be tried by a jury behind closed doors," Natalia Loseva, an aide to the chairman of the Court, told Itar-Tass. A panel of 12 jurors will be selected from 80 candidates.
The defendant is Farukh Tashbayev, a 30-year-old native of Uzbekistan. He is accused of abduction, sexual abuse of a minor, rape and murder of a minor.
Second-form pupil Vasilisa Galitsyna did not return home on February 2. Her mother reported her disappearance to police. On February 6, the girl was found slain.
